    Why does emacs use mouse-2 for activating hyperlinks, buttons etc?

Because these buffers are usually read-only, which means that the
normal definition of mouse-2 (yank) is not applicable.

The normal definition of mouse-1 is perfectly meaningful in these
buffers.  It seems like a bad idea to replace it with something
incompatible and make the normal definition of mouse-1 unavailable.

Do you have a precise proposal that you think is ok?
